White Board

The day-to-day work in my class happens in at tables in an “individually together” manner that I described in the post. Quick summary of “individually together”: Students work at tables on problems in their packets. They mostly work on their own, take a moment to consult and debate with the group, then move forward with their own thinking. It involves a lot of individual thinking and working which is periodically supercharged with moments of group debate. It isn’t quite group work, but it is collaborative, and it is (in my experience and observation) better then staying mainly at just one end of the individual-together spectrum.
